Snirt Watch 2011 Has Ended

Our snirt pile has finally disappeared!  

Remember our snirt contest?  The person who guessed the date and time that the snirt pile would disappear without going over, would be declared the winner.

The snirt pile was *tiny* yesterday, first thing in the morning, and it disappeared by just around 5 pm on April 18th, so: 

The winner of a $30 Gift Card to Target is: 
Donna from Just One Donna
who guessed April 18th at 3:00 PM.  

Congrats, Donna!

We had a lot of rain over the weekend, which really diminished the pile.  For those of you who guessed May, I wasn't trying to throw you off.  We HAVE had snow on the ground, in May.  

Look at these snirt piles we still had in mid April, one year.
Here's our snirt pile from April 15th, 2003.  We were walking around in shorts, looking at it!  (This is at our old house).

Does anyone have a "snirt" pile left in their yard?  I've been seeing so many blog photos of green grass and flowers...

Nope, snow has been gone here for about 10 days now...

All this rain is making our grass very green & we are very happy!

Oh my! I won? How surprised am I! Thanks very much! I guess it was a good thing to use my experience with my own snirt as a gauge in figuring out when yours would be gone. I bet you are happy not to have to look at it anymore! I know I was happy when ours left the premises.

Congrats to Donna. I guess it takes a snirt owner to know about a snirt pile's longevity.

Congrats Donna! I don't even remember what I said to see how close(or not) my answer was.

Aww...I was just a few hours too late :) Congrats to Donna:)

Our snirt pile was gone, then came back on Sunday, then left again by Monday. I'm hoping this IS IT! So done with winter - let the warm temps begin (and stay!)

Hey Donna, I sent you an email. :-)

Snirt! That is hilarious and perfect. A pile of snow with dirt mixed in that never goes away deserves an awkward name.
